Key Liberal and National party electorates support a switch to 100% renewables by 2030 and a global moratorium on new coalmines, according to new ReachTEL polling commissioned by The Australia Institute.

A moratorium on new coalmines received between 50% and 57% support by voters in the seats of Dickson, held by Peter Dutton; New England, held by Barnaby Joyce; Warringa, held by Tony Abbott; and Page, held by Kevin Hogan.

There is significant support for Australia becoming a 100% renewable energy-powered nation by 2030. Between 72% and 77% of voters in the conservative electorates are supportive, with just 14% to 18% opposed.
